Wisconsin farmers will receive $50 million of the $2 billion in federal coronavirus-relief money coming into the state.
Governor Tony Evers yesterday announced his immediate plans for the funding.
The governor also is putting another $15 million into a state food security initiative. Details about that plan and about how the money will be distributed to farmers haven’t been released, but farmers will need to apply for the money through the state Department of Revenue.
The first payments to farmers are expected as early as June.
